One of the most popular Pinoy dishes is kare-kare. It is commonly made from a base of stewed oxtail, beef tripe, pork hocks, calves’ feet, pig’s feet or trotters, various cuts of pork, beef stew meat, and occasionally offal and features a thick savory peanut sauce.

Among the vegetables added to this food are the following; eggplant, Chinese cabbage, or other greens, daikon, green beans, okra, and asparagus beans.

Kare-kare is flavored with ground-roasted peanuts or peanut butter, onions, and garlic. It can be thickened with toasted or plain ground rice and is colored with annatto.

The homegrown dish can also be made in different variations such as with seafood like prawns, squid, and mussels.
